Slated to begin Dec. 10 in Los Angeles, this year’s all-star game will pit the top player—as decided by the fans—in each role from each pro region (Korea, China, North America, Europe, and Taiwan), plus one team from Australia’s own all-star event.
The top vote getter from each position will be invited with one stipulation: Only two players are allowed from each individual team. As such, here are your all-star teams. Note that the teams listed were their 2015 teams, not their current spots:
Top Lane: Marcus “Dyrus” Hill, Team SoloMid (41.6 percent)
Jungle: Hai Lam, Cloud9 (34.1 percent)
Mid Lane: Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg, Team SoloMid (73.3 percent)
AD Carry: Peter “Doublelift” Peng, Counter Logic Gaming (52.8 percent)
Support: Zaqueri “Aphromoo” Black, Counter Logic Gaming (39.1 percent)

North American fans may be most interested in Aphromoo and Doublelift’s selection, which will put two players who recently had a very public falling out on the same team.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances or players backing out, these should be the rosters at the upcoming event in Los Angeles, excluding the Australian all-star lineup. The voting process is naturally a popularity contest—you can see in certain regions popular players outperformed players who were clearly stronger on the Summoner’s Rift this season. But that’s okay. The All-Star Game is a celebration of competitive League of Legends for the fans, and they’ll get to see the players they want next month.
The event itself will include a tournament featuring the regional teams as well as a series of games mixing players from two teams pulled from a combination of three regions. Team Fire will mix Korean, North American, and Taiwanese players, while Team Ice features China, Europe, and the wild card regions. All in all, it promises to be an exciting conclusion to the 2015 League of Legends season.
